Do you work with trees, or would you like to? Or perhaps you are a keen amateur with an interest in forests and woodland and would like to discover more? If so, the Royal Forestry Society can help to further your knowledge, understanding and enjoyment of trees and woodland management.

As an educational charity, the Royal Forestry Society offers two recognised qualifications: the Professional Diploma in Arboriculture and the Certificate in Arboriculture.


It has over 4,000 members, who benefit from:

  • An inside look at around 100 woodlands a year at the local meetings across England, Wales and N. Ireland;
  • Meeting other members locally and nationally;
  • Receiving the Quarterly Journal of Forestry and a fortnightly e-newsletter;
  • Owning the largest redwood grove in Europe, and a 74 ha woodland in the Chilterns;
  • Contributing to the creation of the new National Forest;
  • Bursaries and awards;
  • Attending our annual conference;
  • Going on study tours at home and abroad.


Full details can be found on the website, together with a wealth of information on forests and forestry in the UK.
